John Wall celebrating as Wizards win
Last night in Washington D.C the top 2 players in the 2010 NBA Draft were on tap but the game was all about John Wall and Cartier Martin vs. Andre Iguodala and Louis Williams.
Wall had one of the best rookie home openers in NBA history with 29 points, 13 assists and nine steals in a thriller-best game of the week.
The Washington Wizards and Philadelphia Seventy Sixers go at it back and forth these guys just put on a show.
The closing seconds of the game were great. Philadelphia was up by three and Washington’s Martin hits a last second 3 pointer to tie the game and send it into overtime.
The Wizards’ Wall was playing unselfishly. He was scoring, but he was passing often. In a play you’ll want to see, he gave a pass to a wide open shooter who mad the three pointer to give Washington a four point lead near the end of the game.
Philadelphia scored and scored quickly with one minute left in the game to gain a one point lead.
Wall and the Wizards came back the other way and Kirk Hinrich got fouled and hit two big free throws to give Washington one point lead. Philadelphia came back with seven seconds left and they give the ball to there clutch player Andre Iguodala. He shot a well contested fade away and missed, leaving the Wizards with the win.
It was a great game with so many highlights but Wall has shown he is a force to be reckoned with in the NBA. As we get to see he and Blake Griffin go at it for the rookie of the year award, it should be an exciting NBA season and it will only get more exciting as the year goes by.
